About Keep Left 2017

In the wake of Donald Trump’s election, we have seen a new wave of racism and bigotry across the globe. Malcolm Turnbull’s government is increasing its scapegoating of refugees and migrants as it flounders in the polls. The threat of war, racism and inequality are growing. But socialists like Jeremy Corbyn in Britain and Bernie Sanders in the US have shown that anger with the political system can also be pulled to the left. Keep Left is an annual two-day conference of revolutionary ideas organised by Solidarity. Come along to join the discussion about how we can win change.
